If I Were

Mama Squirrel

If I Were...

I saw this activity on another blog and thought it would be fun to do myself and fun to challenge others to do.   I copied and pasted it, and forgot about it for years.  I just happened to come across it today.

So, here goes:

If I were a month I’d be October.

If I were a day I’d be Thursday.

If I were a time of day I’d be 7:00a.m..

If I were a font I’d be Papyrus.

If I were a planet I’d be Saturn...

If I were a direction I’d be really screwed cause I would be going between the North and the South....all things north appeal to me....but South because the minute I have to call a business in the south and hear that southern voice, I feel home.

If I were a piece of furniture I’d be a recliner.

If I were a liquid I’d be a home canned tomato juiced.

If I were a gemstone I’d be a an opal.

If I were a tree I’d be a sweet gum in autumn or pink dogwood in spring.

If I were an element I’d be gold.

If I were a tool I’d be a sewing machine.

If I were a flower I’d be an iris.

If I were an element of weather I’d be a summer storm.

If I were a musical instrument I’d be a mandolin.

If I were a colour I’d be yellow.

If I were an emotion I’d be joy.

If I were a fruit I’d be a pineapple .

If I were a sound I’d be the sound of Lorelei's laughter.

If I were a car/truck I’d be the a Toyota Tundra.

If I were a food I’d be Southern style cornbread--the kind made without sugar.

If I were a place I’d be a beloved home.

If I were material I’d be cotton.

If I were a taste I’d be salty.

If I were a scent I’d be honeysuckle, woodsmoke, or new mown hay.

If I were a body part I’d be sparkling eyes .

If I were a song I’d  be "
Good to Be Home" by the Everybodyfieds

If I were a bird I’d be a Northern Harrier.

If I were a gift I’d be under a Christmas tree.

If I were a city I’d be sad--no matter where I live I will always feel like I am a country girl.... .

If I were a door I’d open into a log cabin.

If I were a pair of shoes I’d be earth shoes.

If I were a poem I’d be about autumn.

OK, so who is next????

If you choose to do this, let me know...I for sure don't want to miss what others have to say....I am sure there will be answers I wish I had thought of.

The one about the city really struck home with me this morning, as we had been looking at building closer to my kids and a city, but have elected to stay in a small community...just too much for a country girl at heart. Fun post.

Marie said...

This is awesome! I will do this soon...

This is the first I've seen anything like this. I enjoyed reading your responses.

Stay warm! (At least we've got a bit of sunshine for a change.) :)


Ginny said...

Love your squirrel! Is there ANY better sound than children laughing? NO, there is not! The smell of honeysuckle sounds lovely, for me, that would tie with fresh baked bread from the oven, or maybe cinnamon rolls.

Carletta said...

Great close up of the squirrel!
A couple of your answers would be mine.
I'm going to sit down and think about this.

DeniseinVA said...

That squirrel photo was incredible. Fun answers. I haven't seen this before. I'll give it some thought.

Small City Scenes said...

What a neat idea---If I were.......
I really like the Northern Harrier-one of my favorite Raptors. Some of your answers would be mine also.
I love the smell of the air after a summer storm.

EG CameraGirl said...

Very cool, Rose. I will copy this and think about doing it too.

Judy said...

I love this Rose. I think I will play along, some of your "If I were..." answers are what I would put down.

Well I am having cornbread right now, lol..the plain kind with stone ground cornmeal and very little sugar ! :)

Amy Burzese said...

Never seen this particular one. I'll have to think on it and revisit later. Hum . . .

Dianna said...

Just found this by way of Marie's blog -- love the idea, and will plan to write a post with my answers soon!
